Former two-weight world champion David Haye, who is now managing British heavyweight champion Derek Chisora as manager, is confident that his ward should be forced into a tough and dirty fight on Alexander Usik.
“In a fight against an Olympic winner, the last thing you want to feel is his gloves from a distance. You need to snuggle up to his chest, step up to his feet, pounce on him up close and hit all the places where possible. He will not allow a clean blow to the chin. So you have to punch through gloves, arms and elbows.
To torture this guy, you need to be tough and dirty. We must force Usyk, who is a master of boxing, to participate in a fight. The moment it turns into a boxing match, you will be worse than him. We need to drag Usyk into a fight, make him fight, “said David Haye in an interview with BT Sport Boxing YouTube channel.
We will remind, Haye also stated that he had never seen Chisora as he is now.
